FC Dallas vs Houston Dynamo: Match Predictions

Maybe a derby will get Dallas going?

MLS: Houston Dynamo at FC Dallas Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Dallas is officially in a funk, going scoreless in two home games against expansion side Nashville, and having picked only 1 out of a possible 6 points in the process. FC Dallas looks lethargic and out of ideas offensively at this point, but perhaps a little pride being wounded is just what they need as they make the trip down to Houston with El Capitan is on the line.

The staff are continuing to make picks this season and we’re going with a simple points system for 2020:

Here are our staff predictions against NSH:


Name Result for FCD FCD Score Opposition Score Commentary
Name Result for FCD FCD Score Opposition Score Commentary
Ben Lyon Win 2 1 The smug comments from Sounders fans this week...
Jack Rous Win 2 0 How do they do it? Ricardo Pepi
Jason Poon Loss 0 2 It's been fun but I'm not seeing a way out of Seattle with a win.
Jeff Loftin Loss 1 2 Close loss after controversial play at the other end which mysteriously doesn't get VAR treatment.
Mohammad Bushnaq Loss 1 2 Valiant effort but Dallas falls short in the Pacific NW for their revenge bid.
Nathan Hill Draw 2 2 FC Dallas advance on PKs and claim the Cascadia Cup. Goals from Jara and Pepi.
Ryan Scanlon Loss 1 3 Seattle’s quality and combination play will be too much for FC Dallas which will not let us get away with what we pulled off against Portland. Michael Barrios gives us a glimmer of hope with a goal before Jordan Morris and Nick Lodeiro put this out of reach.

Someone’s on the board! Jeff correctly predicted a lousy draw last weekend, so yay? I suppose we’re off to just as terrible of a start as the team has too.
